The Office’s John Krasinski talks about his favorite Jim prank on Dwight (the fitness orb from the Season 2 episode Performance Review) and reveals a little behind-the-scenes trivia.
When Rainn’s on the exercise ball bouncing up and down, I come over and I stab it with the scissors. In every other take we did, I stabbed it and it just slowly goes down. And the camera angle was that he just slowly ducked behind the thing and it was incredible. On the last take, they were like “do one more.” And I remember going over and I went boom! And I must have hit the seam or something. And it exploded. He hit the ground as hard as I’ve ever seen a human hit the ground. If you go back and watch that episode, I just dive out because I am crying laughing.
